And if you wouldn't mind to keep this thread "clean" let's try to keep the the chitchat (i.e. even the welcome to the board replies) to a minimum or this thread may get to 100 pages fast

So I'll start things off :

My name is petabyte and I'm a forum junkie. :oops: I've been off the wagon for a number of years and countless times I've tried to stop but it's useless.. I need to feed my learning addiction.. :!:

Now just a bit about me.. I'm a fairly secretive guy in terms of privacy on the net.. especially when the things you write are visable to anyone with a net connection. But I love to share the info and knowledge I have, so that's why I'm here, to share and learn.

my formal education is that of an electronic engineer and I held a field service position with a firm for over 20 years.. that job is gone now along with company car and laptop <cry> oh well..
So needless to say (but i will) I've always tinkered with things.. yes, a hacker.. (too bad that term lost it's orignal meaning) a hardware hacker mostly.. hacking fixes in whatever I find that breaks.. (except for cars, I have friends for that) I got started a little late into the computers, my first box was an ibm pc-xt with a whopping 10meg HD,blazing fast 4.66mhz 8086 processor, 640k mem running dos 3.3.. man was I cool back then.. :roll: nevermind..

so these days, I'm forced to be a software guy as well.. as I fix pc's for friends and that usually means cleaning virus/trojan/adware and reinstalling OS's.. yeah hardware breaks but not that often :cry: so as a result, I keep up on my software knowledge by visting a few security forums.. and trolling around a few hardware forums as well.

now I found this place from a thread at motherboards.org/forums
where I've been hanging out lately.. it's a nice friendly place with some pretty smart people.. mostly, of course, it's about mobo's.. So this person mentioned badcaps.net and I recalled reading articles a year or so ago about the faulty caps and was curious as to what you guys were up to.. and I said "w00t.. they have a forum"..

and so now.. you're stuck with me :P

so what's your story ? come on.. give it up..

Default Hi, Have a greate Day Evryone.

even created some testing equipement for the production lines we had.
after that, it seemed like electrtonics makers had left my country (or at least my region of it) ...
I eventually got in to ITC through a schooling program after I had started playing with the PC, privately, in september 1997. My son was going to do IT in school and had requested we finally get our own PC. It was through my son too, that I got in to PC games.
Anyway, I 've worked in professional ITC for nearly 4 years when I got made redundant.
I am still without work now, but from time to time I work on private people's PC's and I 'm going to try to get with a firm that does this for a living ...

So, in short, I have extensive electronics knowledge, also with Surface Mounted Devices (I 've soldered thousands of them by hand in R&D, pre-production testing work and repairs). I bought components for the firm too.
I 've worked in pro ITC long enough to get by.

That 's it (for now). If anyone wants to know more, drop me a message.

P.S.: I live in Belgium, Brussels is the capital, where a large piece of NATO does its business, with a large airport etc..
I live about 45 kilometers north of our capital, near the port of Antwerp through which many an American soldier passed on his way to Germany for the 'Reforger' manoeuvers with other NATO troups in years passed.

Greetings,
I am disabled/retired, 5 years ago at age of 59, after an on the job injury. Had 5 surgeries since & am called an "Orthopedic Nightmare", lol.
I have built up a bit of knowledge on just about everything as I have always been a DIY'er.
Unfortunately I have also forgotten a lot too.....
I am trying to repair an HP 15-f387wm, My son's, so I have been looking for some info.
I'm hoping someone may help me out a bit.
I do have a digital soldering unit with iron & air plus most other tools.
I may add some more later.
Nice to be aboard,��

What's UP all!!! I am a jack of all trades and master of none. I have been taking things apart from infancy. Although electronics has been a love of mine for a while, now I want to be master of it. I can fix anything.... from your car to a bus to a kitchenaid to a computer and now as of recently I repair phone motherboards.

I learned about computers in 1985 in the 4th grade (now you got an idea of my age). In that intro class I learned BASIC and LOGOS but just a little, and that made me dangerous because I understood the basic idea of how programming worked. In 1999 I was working as a mechanic and I tinkered on the side with my own pc breaking it over and over until I knew what to do by knowing what not to do, so then I build my own computer a couple times. Then when when PPC was a thing I owned my first Compaq 3630 ppc. Learned how to root it and cook up some custom roms from PPCGeeks. When mine broke I fixed it and decided to refurbish them on the side for some extra money. Always working on the side for friends fixing their pcs and then being the tech guy at work fixing all their stuff eventually got me confident enough to start a business in phone tablet and cpu repair.
Learning all of my computer/repair knowledge online I have always tried to be helpful because that's how it should be! Now I recently took a microsoldering class after doing it on my own for a little over a year. Now I'm Dangerous! watch out broken electronics here I come! now I am trying to make a living out of this thing and learn what I can.

I look forward to learning from you all and helping anyone I can. I am happy to share what I have and hope I can get what I need from this group of smart repair/lifehack group I am a part of now!!
